The HP Chromebook 13-G1 supports Android apps today and I have never noticed the supposed bending screen. So I’d call that a non-issue. The only thing it lacks is a touchscreen. Which is a sacrifice likely made for weight reasons and honestly not important for getting things done on devices that do not fold back into an actual tablet.
Provided you get a higher end model with 8GiB ram or more, it is a sweet device! The other one I would consider is the Samsung Pro but I haven’t had any hands on time with that. I’m tired of 16:9 screens.
